Lewis Hamilton adds F1 title lead with victory in Hungarian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton has extended his Formula 1 championship lead to 24 points with an emphatic victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Mercedes driver produced a faultless display to cross the line nearly 20 seconds ahead of closest challengers Sebastian Vettel.

Ferrari duo had been expected to outperform their Mercedes counterparts, but a delayed pit stop for Sebastian Vettel saw him lose his advantage over Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas, before recovering to finish second.

Kimi Raikkonen claimed third place, meanwhile, and Daniel Ricciardo passed Bottas on the last lap to take fourth.

Despite Vettel colliding with Bottas in an action-packed finale, the stewards ruled that it was a racing incident and no further punishment was given.

Hamilton’s lead heading into the summer break is the largest of the season so far.
